A St. Louis County mom is facing charges of statutory rape and sodomy after confessing to ongoing sexual relationships with a pair of fourteen-year-old boys, police say.

Patricia Bast, 38, admitted to having sex with the teens in the past several months, according to court documents. She was 37 when it began, and both boys told St. Louis County police they'd had sex with her multiple times, sometimes while they stayed overnight at her house.



On Saturday, prosecutors charged Bast, who lives off of Midland Boulevard near Maryland Heights, with two counts of second-degree statutory rape and one count of second-degree statutory sodomy as well as two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Bast was divorced in 2010 and won custody of her two children, court records show. She's being held on $75,000 bond.
